Hi. I just wanted to ask wich programs do you use. Is it Ilustrator? Well, Happy Holidays!

Hi there! I use pencils, pens, brushes, Photoshop, a Wacom tablet and a lot of the time I screenprint my work too.


I am currently working on a new process section for my website, which should be up and running in January.

New silkscreened card design

One of two new silkscreened card designs. I will have these, packaged with envelopes, along with other cards, mini prints, mega prints, my new zine, my old zines and more at the Punk Rock Flea Market, this upcoming Sunday, Dec 11th in Philadelphia!

Scan of Silkscreened Zine Covers

Shout to my 3,000+ tumblrinos



This is a scan of the silkscreened (back/front) covers of KLIP KLOP #1, which I printed yesterday. Each side of the paper has 5 layers of ink, metallic silver, blue, red, yellow and black. This week I’ll print the guts.

Harry Potter drawing



My friend Dave is making leather-bound boxes to house his Harry Potter collection. He asked me to draw him something for the front of each box, and he is going to get it made into a magnesium plate, which he will use to stamp in to the leather. 


I’m going to do one for each of the seven books, and this one is just a test to see how well the process works.


I’ll post photos whenever he gets it made.

McSweeney's Delivers THE GOODS

Have you seen THE GOODS yet? As described on their site, “The Goods is a gallimaufry of games, puzzles, comics, and other diversions, appearing in newspapers across the U.S. and Canada.” Past contributors include Adam Rex, Bob Shea, Brian Biggs, Carson Ellis, and now…me.

I was very happy to be asked to illustrate an activity for this week’s issue, and I was ecstatic when they approved my idea - A MAZE ABOUT NAPOLEON!!!

I am a huge nerd for French history, specifically anything to do with The French Revolution or Napoleon and was very excited to work on this assignment. The maze itself is in the shape of a bicorne hat, with which Napoleon is often associated. The obstacles throughout the maze are specific to his life and are explained in the little bio I wrote up with help from THE GOODS Editor, Mac Barnett, and J. David Markham, author of NAPOLEON FOR DUMMIES and several other great books.

Check out the maze in today’s issue of The San Francisco Chronicle! Call your local newspaper and tell (the features editor) that you want THE GOODS! 

Can you spot the Bowie reference? Click here to view the maze larger on flickr.

 


And here’s the bio:

SCBWI Art Showcase Honor Award (again!)



Last weekend I was in LA for the 40th Annual Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Conference. I was lucky enough to win an Illustrator Honor Award and was happy to see talks by Judy Blume, Jon Scieska, Norton Juster and many other talented people. It was a great time and I highly recommend checking out scbwi.org to learn more about the organization and the other conference they do in NY in January.
